A charity performance of Patrick Marber’s Three Days in In The Country, performed by final year BA (Hons) Acting and BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship students, has raised over £500.

The college annually donates proceeds from box office sales and audience donations from one of their public performances to the Mayor of Bexley’s chosen charity. This year a record amount of £530 was raised to support Parkinson’s UK.

The performance, in The Rose Theatre on Tuesday 14 November, also gave an opportunity for students from the colleges’ School of Design, Management and Technical Arts to showcase their talents. In addition to designing and operating the lighting and sound, producing the costumes and constructing the set, the production team thrilled the audience with an indoor rainstorm and flying drone scene.

After the performance, the Mayor of Bexley, Councillor Peter Reader, the Mayoress and guests from Parkinson’s UK met the cast and production team to congratulate them on their performance.

Rose Bruford College Acting Principal Dr. Andrew Walker, said;

“Once again we are delighted to be able to support the Mayor of Bexley’s charity appeal. On behalf of the cast and production team and everyone at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, I would like to thank the audience for their generous contributions to a fantastic cause."
